Pacing the Mets

I'll keep this short and sweet, but after precisely one-sixth of the regular season, the Mets are keeping the following pace (tiny sample size disclaimer obviously):

Wins - 84

Losses -78

[BTW, this is so far off what I think will really happen. I'm still thinking 93-69]

Team HR - 132 - low but wouldn't be bad considering Citi, would it?

Team SB - 120 - a little disappointing given 138 last year

Team 3B - 72! - that would be almost double last year's 38!

 

Some notable player pacings:

Frank the Closer - 54 saves

Johan the Man - on course to pitch 230+ innings and notch 300+ strikeouts. Unsustainable, of course. Or is it...

Voltron is on course for 30 2B, 30 HR, 120 RBI, which would surely give him a good shot at MVP.

Sean Green is heading towards a respectable 72 IP, some nice middle relief workhorse action, until you realise that he is also on pace to cough up 72 earned runs. Ouch.

Maine and Santana are keeping the ball in the park, with both projecting for only 12 HR over the course of the season (though Johan's humungous innings count so far makes his paltry 2 HR that much more impressive). 

Feliciano has recovered from a wobbly first few games to be looking at 84 Ks over 72 IP.

 

These are only indicative of a handful of games, but I do think they highlight some of the strengths and weaknesses of this current crop of players quite nicely.
